Six Petrol Tankers Collide In Kwara State, 8 Dead

No fewer than eight persons on Wednesday died in multiple accidents involving six petrol tankers and a car at Oloru-Kanbi in Moro Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accident occurred when the tankers, heading to the NNPC depot at Oke-Oyi in Ilorin had a head-on collision with three others returning from the depot.

One of the tankers which was loaded with Diesel had a head-on coalition with the other three coming from Jenna also in Moro local government area of the state.

Confirming the incident to NAN, Alhaji Abdulwaheed lyanda-Yakub, Director Kwara State Fire Service, said 12 people died in the multiple accidents.
